Affordable housing is the highest profile issue concerning Somerville legislators right now. Small supports make a difference, even while big issues are being addressed. For example, in 2018, dozens of Somerville residents and families received grants for security deposits, back rent, utility bills and moving costs associated with stabilizing housing. These grants kept families in their homes, adults at their jobs, and kids in school. Today, I made a donation to the Save our Homes Walk to support the fund that provides emergency grants throughout the year.
